Learning Courses


With Ruth Long

This course will run in October 2021.

Writing fantastic worlds isn’t a magic trick. Learn how to create spellbinding, realistic and enchanting worlds in all kinds of fiction. Even the most imaginative world needs to follow certain rules and feel real for the purposes of the story; otherwise readers can’t allow the story to carry them away. Join multi-published, European award-winning author Ruth Frances Long aka Jessica Thorne to learn all about world building, from the ground up, and how to write stories that are out of this world.
